Surviving a Network Upgrade
In late 2005, I managed and designed the upgrade of a corporate wide-area network. This involved a switch to a new provider. Hilarity ensued from day one. In this presentation, I'll be talking about my lessons learned from it, so that others may be spared from similar fates. Subjects include dealing with vendors, managing the cut-over schedule, and what to do when all hell breaks loose. There will also be a questions and answers session at the end.

Joseph Bender is the owner of Bendorius Consulting, LLC, a network engineering and telecom consulting firm. He has spent most of his 15 year career working with all aspects of telecommunications, including project management, hardware, wrangling service providers, and disaster recovery. Somehow, he has managed to retain most of his sanity. He currently is involved in several network re-engineering projects and new product development for his clients. When he's not pushing packets, he's playing with radios and herding his four cats with lasers.
